As the spring semester launches, Mechanical Designer Bryan Kroh will once again be lending his CAD modeling expertise to Winchester Thurston, teaching a 7-part course that will introduce students to Autodesk Inventor, a CAD modeling software application for mechanical design. Bryan was quite active with Winchester Thurston last semester, teaching different aspects of computer aided design for several classes at multiple grade levels. He worked with post AP seniors in a research science class, teaching solid modeling in SolidWorks, which they used to design, model, and 3D print products useful as extensions to the human body. Most recently, he gave a lesson on SolidWorks basics to the Upper School Urban Research and Design class, allowing students to model and 3D print scaled models of their site plans. He may soon interact with the Middle and Lower schools, teaching CAD basics through the use of Tinkercad to aid in math and science lessons.
